Isaac is based on the Spanish stage play “El día que nació Isaac” by Antonio Hernández, that follows two old friends, Denis and Nacho, who meet again – both with their respective partners – years after having an intense relationship as teenagers.  Nacho and his wife Marta are attempting to get pregnant without success, while Denis and his wife Carmen are struggling to fund their dream restaurant. When Denis offers his partner as a paid surrogate for Nacho and Marta, the two couples have to deal with secrets that were buried deep inside long ago. The film is a  a genre-blend of drama, black comedy and an existential journey. 

ISAAC is the debut feature film from directors Angeles Hernandez and David Matamoros,  produced by Hernández and Matamoros’ Barcelona-based Mr Miyagi.

We believe North American audiences will find Isaac to be an intriguing, and very honest, story”, said Hernandez “Four characters, all so different, getting messed up in their daily lives, when the simple solution to their issues is to accept who they are and live their own dreams. Not not somebody else’s. We are thrilled that our film will reach an audience and we truly hope that it touches somebody’s heart and makes them think “I should put myself first”.If that happens, our purpose with this movie will be complete”.

“The steps we take in life, the decisions we make, the roads we transit believing that a brighter day will come, sometimes lead to the unexpected”, said Matamoros. “Isaac is about building your own destiny and not what other people has dreamt what your destiny should be”.

Isaac stars Iván Sánchez alongside Pepe Ocio, both of whom star in Netflix’s You Cannot Hide and High Seas respectively, along with Erika Bleda, and Maria Ribera. The film has one numerous awards, including Best Actor and Best Director at the Puerto Vallarta Festival, Special Jury Mention for Narrative Feature at OUTshine Film Festival, and was nominated for Best Feature Film at the Guadalajara International Film Festival.
